This chapter reviews the basic aspects of anole population biology and life history and the role of anoles in the ecosystem, discussing reproduction, growth, dispersal, life span and survival rates, predation, parasites, population density and constancy, and diet. In some cases, such as diet, considerable diversity exists within and among anole species. The chapter explores this diversity, explaining its ecological and evolutionary significance.

Keywords:   population biology, life history, reproduction, growth, dispersal, life span, survival, predation, parasites, population density
